Dr. Martinez was very professional from the start with his diagnosis and treatment. He performed a hemorrhoidectomy on me which was very painful, but no unmanageable. I am very pleased with the outcome.

Dr. Martinez performed a hemorrhoidectomy on me. He did an excellent job. I had very little pain after the procedure. I was quite nerves because of all the horror stories I had read. I did not have to take any of the pain medication that was prescripted. The first four days after the procedure there was a little discomfort while having a bowel movement but completely manageable.

Beware went to see him twice in last 6 months because Dr Kumar was not available. My symptoms were bloating and constipation. I was spending 2 hours a day trying to have a bowel movement and felt something was wrong. He refused to listen and never scoped me and refused to do a colonospy since i had one a year ago. Went back for second visit as i had lost 15 lbs in 2 months. I specifically ask for a colonospy again and he refused. Had colonospy today 4 polyps removed and have internal hemmoriods.

Horrible bedside manner. I was in tears because I was already scared and anxious enough as it was. I went in twice because I had and issue with something on the rectal tissue (from a previous issue). He said he didn't see anything both times. My gut told me to go elsewhere. The new doctor clearly said, "yes, there is xxx there and I will take care of it right here in the office." How did Dr. Martinez miss this TWICE? I have never gone back. I found a great new doctor. Avoid this man.

Rude didn't order any pain control meds after recovery room. in recovery room only given one small dose. In fact he didn't order any meds not even meds I was on when I came into hospital. My floor nurse had to call him twice before he ordered any meds and even said I couldn't be in that much pain. Get have your rectum removed and tell me it doesn't hurt. He never came into see me after. He told me to plan on 3 day admit he sent me home next morn. Bleeding and no control of bowels IMO Monster
